The Office of Student Affairs is strongly committed to assisting our students with career and professional development. Beginning with Orientation, personnel in this office are responsible for assisting students with providing unbiased information about medical specialties, residency application, preparation for interviews, and their participation in various residency matching services.
Career planning is an interactive process: we can assist students in setting and achieving academic, professional, and personal goals that are consistent with their own interests, values, abilities, degree requirements, and career expectations. The Office of Student Affairs provides a wide range of information and resources to students, and may refer them to other appropriate campus resources. There are many factors involved with planning a medical career and our office can assist students in understanding each of those factors and help in the decision making process.
We coordinate with the AAMC Careers in Medicine program, an online resource, which aids students in understanding their personality types, skills, interests, and values. This program is designed to assist students in a logical process of self-assessment and career planning.
